Preparing and Filing of GSTR 9 & GSTR 9 C 

GSTR-9 and GSTR-9C are indirect taxes of India. GSTR-9 is an annual return, which is signed by a specified authority (auditor, self or CMA) and is a reconciliation statement. An important feature of both the forms is that they can be filed only once. There is no amendment in this.

GSTR-9C is dependent on GSTR-9 annual return. Therefore auditing takes place after the annual returns. Also, taxpayers have to remember that the return can be filed only once and there is no provision to amend this return.

GSTR-9 is an annual return that is required to be filed by all registered taxpayers. GSTR-9C, on the other hand, is an annual reconciliation statement under GST which is certified by the CA and self.
